What is the Summer Reading Club?
The Summer Reading Club is a FREE school holiday program with activities designed especially for children and young people.
Public libraries across Australia invite children/teens and families to join the Summer Reading Club, which is led by State Library of Queensland and in partnership with ALIA. The theme for this year is: Adventure. The campaign will officially run from Monday, 1 December 2014 to Saturday, 31 January 2015.
EXCERPT FROM THE SUMMER READING CLUB NEWSLETTER - JUNE 2013
"Last year, 864 public library branches across Australia participated in the delivery of the Summer Reading Club program; 35,576 children registered and an estimated 234,468 books were read. These results demonstrate that the Summer Reading Club is an excellent program for engaging children and young people during the summer school holidays."
